In Sea Trout Secrets 7, we start fly fishing in late winter with Claus Eriksen on the Danish coast, near Fyn. Its February and the water is cold on the coast at around 2 degrees but its slightly warmer than in the fjords and as Thomas explains this can make all the difference when selecting a good location to target sea trout. He starts in very shallow water on a mussel bed and is soon into some nice sea trout but before long the fish lose interest. Claus explains every detail of his thinking to work out the correct tactic for catching these fish again, an example of why this series is such an excellent resource to learn from. Thomas Hansen then provides a masterclass on spin fishing for sea trout demonstrating how important it is to keep changing lures for continued hook ups and when the lures have run out, Thomas switches to a Gulp worm and continues to catch some lovely fish. Back with Claus on the fly, and its Spring and he explains how the behaviour of the sea trout can now be different with the fish often holding in small tightly packed shoals, so Claus likes a mobile approach covering plenty of ground to find them. As we head into Spring and Summer, tactics change again and Thomas and Claus guide us through more of their secrets for success.
Sea Trout Secrets 7 is an excellent addition to the series covering successful strategy and tactics for both fly and spin fishing and aptly showing why Denmark is just such an incredible sea trout fishery.
